Masters & PhD Programme (Research)

The Institute of Borneo Studies supports postgraduate degrees to M.Soc.Sc and Ph.D levels based on research projects.Student is assigned to an experienced member of academic staff as supervisor or to a supervisory panel. A panel is made up of graduate staff and experts from either within or outside the University. The subject of research will be jointly determined by the candidate and supervisor(s) based upon the guidelines of the Institute's goals and objectives. Candidates undertaking these programmes must be self-motivated and proactive as they will be largely responsible for their own learning. In cases where previous experience does not fully meet the requirements for the chosen field, supplemental course-work will be a requirement for programme completion.
